Forum: GratefulDead Subject: A very welcome diversion after a difficult day...

A spectacularly successful business venture that I undertook in North Carolina over the past three months has culminated in a very difficult period in my life. I'm dealing with something quite tragic right now, and unfortunately there's no light at the end of the tunnel. But I find some consolation in a box that I found on my front door this evening after a particularly troubling day. Dave's Picks Vol. 1 arrived today. Though I'm living on a street without joy, this particular performance of Scarlet> Fire can still put a smile on my face. No matter how bad things can get, there's always the Grateful Dead...

More shows? I NEED MORE SHOWS!

As dark as it seems, your place in GD and comedy history is, at least, secure:

I'm so sorry to hear that things are that dark. Tragic is a big, sad word, and I can't imagine what that must translate to in your life now, but it absolutely sucks. There really will be a light, even if you don't see it yet ...

Incidentally, D, thanks for your amazing perceptions and all that you bring to this silly place. I've learned a lot from you, and really appreciate it.

Hey CLIFF--it goes without saying that Jock and I have valued your kind words with our own health issues over the years we've spent here at the Forum (I say it this way because, as most of you know, Jock is my dog that has disk issues like me...and generally cuddles up on one of the chairs shown below while I sit on the heating pad and chat with you all...so, yeah--he "gets" the Forum. I think).

We both hope that your rough patch is smoothed over with as little lasting damage as possible, as soon as possible.

Take care, Fisherman.

Here are Jock and Darci, a more recent photo:

I'm really sorry to learn this cliff...hang in there. The healing power of music is amazing, it has helped me through some of the most monumentally difficult times in my life so far, and unfortunately there have already been a number of them. You WILL get through it no matter how dark things look right now...

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: A very welcome diversion after a difficult day...

short list of "The MANY" low points in the past 20 years of my life
• ran out of money in 1992
• lived in a closet at my friend's place for two years
• worked one year in Qatar for a crook and thief based out of Denver
• worked 30 months straight on third-shift in the Denver Tech Center (w/ lots of overtime)
• walked away from my Broadcasting career in SHAME and DISGUST after 35 years
• I'm penniless. I haven't worked for pay in five years.
• My Biggest Failure was - by far - being partly responsible for The Bluegrass Hotel meltdown
But, that's what keeps me going! I've learned a lot from The Archive and all of you.

Kidding Monte. You can put me on your power point

Steady the keel, and let us know when you see the horizon big D...

Let us know how the remaster sounds. Although the circulating copies were already quite good, I thought there was certainly room for a significant improvement.

Hang in there man. Virtually nobody sees light at the end of the tunnel during a rough patch, but I guarantee it's there. I was in a horrible emotional state about 2 years ago. Got so bad I was hospitalized for awhile, and couldn't fathom things EVER getting better. Other than waiting for time to lapse, there is no quick fix. Through a combination of intense exercise, healthy eating, therapy, and Grateful Dead, I was able to start feeling myself again much quicker than I imagined. And of course, stay as busy possible, but be sure to make time for things you enjoy. - end of Dr. Phil rant

Hey Cliff,

Sorry to hear that man! I hope all turns around for you! While not knowing what you are going through, I remember my wife and I going through a very difficult period and I always knew I could put on some Dead and at least feel better for that moment! Take care and I hope you find some peace and a resolution to your problem

Dennis -

Holler if there's anything I can do. Even if it is only to listen and let you vent. Keeping you and S. in my thoughts and prayers. Give Mason a scratch behind the ears for me.

Sorry to hear about your tribulations. All will resolve itself in time.

As for the S>F, specifically the transition jam, it features perhaps my favorite Donna performance. Subtle and haunting. It really makes the whole thing that much better. Not sure there are many other moments of hers I can say that about with a straight face.

That said, I will lift a dram of Laphroaig tonight in hopes your travels will begin to ease sooner than you expect.
